One in eight men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime and one man dies of the disease every 45 minutes in the UK. It is now the third biggest cancer killer in the UK and projected to continue to take more lives every year. That’s why Prostate Cancer UK has the bold ambition to turn the tide and see prostate cancer tamed.

To succeed we need the very best people.

We are looking for an Executive Director of Research who will play a key role not only in delivering on our research strategy but also in shaping the organisation as a trusted member of the Executive team, working closely with the Chief Executive and the Board.

The successful candidate will be a respected leader in the wider research community with strategic level expertise, who will work collaboratively across the organisation and beyond to leverage the overall performance of the organisation. They will be a rigorous, clear thinker who will help move the organisation through a new stage of development and who understands that people are at the heart of everything we do.

We’re a vibrant, energetic and open organisation. This is a great opportunity to join us at a critical point in our journey.
